  1. Behold: the outfield catch of the decade

    Aug 6, 2010, 8:50 AM EDT

    The best video you’ll see today: If you look closely you can see the wires holding up the centerfielder for the Hiroshima Carp.

  2. Quote of the Day: Awesome Umpire Bob Davidson

    Aug 6, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    Fair ball? Who you gonna believe, me or your own lyin’ eyes?

  3. And That Happened: Thursday's Scores and Highlights

    Aug 6, 2010, 5:47 AM EDT

    Bad umps and a bad ballpark makes for a pretty crappy Thursday for baseball teams in Florida.

  4. Nats' Zimmermann again impressive in rehab outing

    Aug 5, 2010, 10:05 PM EDT

    Jordan Zimmermann continues to carve up minor league hitters. When might he join Stephen Strasburg in the Nationals’ suddenly-talented and suddenly-youthful starting rotation?

  5. Kyle Lohse purchases ping-pong table for AA clubhouse

    Aug 5, 2010, 8:48 PM EDT

    It’s common for rehabbing major leaguers to spoil the fellas in the minor league clubhouses that they visit.  Whether it’s a meal, a new recliner or a flat-screen television, the big leaguers throw down some cash and the underpaid farm hands live in luxury for a moment.  Kyle Lohse underwent surgery on his right forearm…

  6. Torre: Russell Martin unlikely to return this season

    Aug 5, 2010, 7:54 PM EDT

    According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, Dodgers manager Joe Torre said Thursday that catcher Russell Martin is unlikely to return from the disabled list this season…

  7. Loss of Youkilis adds another bump to a rough road

    Aug 5, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    The Red Sox might not be doomed yet, but the team with the eighth-best record in baseball just became an even bigger long shot to play in the postseason after losing Kevin Youkilis to a season-ending thumb injury. In the midst of a third straight wildly productive season, Youkilis was hitting .307/.411/.564 up until hurting…

  8. Carloses Santana, Carrasco to have surgery tomorrow; out for the year

    Aug 5, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    UPDATE: This is what happens when you get your news from Twitter. A correction to the record has been made: it’s Carlos Santana alone getting knee surgery. Carrasco is safe and sound here in Columbus, where the women are strong, the men are good looking, and all the children are above average. Not a good…

  9. Braves' Medlen has a partial tear in his UCL, Tommy John surgery likely

    Aug 5, 2010, 5:59 PM EDT

    Yet Derek Lowe continues to go through life in perfect health. Sorry, that was bitter. I don’t wish harm to come to Lowe. I just really wish it didn’t come to Kris Medlen. He’s young and promising and — most importantly — will likely help anchor the Braves’ rotation in the future when Derek Lowe…

  10. Mark Cuban speaks about the Rangers auction

    Aug 5, 2010, 5:36 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban — as is his wont — took to his blog today to give a very long and very detailed explanation of his involvement in the Texas Rangers auction.  There’s a lot of play-by-play of how he got sucked into the whole crazy business. And it’s all very interesting, so you should definitely read…

  11. Quote of the Days: Rays' Joe Maddon wants a 'real' field

    Aug 5, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    There was no disco dancing for Joe Maddon after Jason Kubel did his little turn on the catwalk Thursday.

  12. Bobby Jenks is probably done closing for good this time

    Aug 5, 2010, 4:56 PM EDT

    UPDATE:  I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Ozzie Guillen isn’t pleased.  Joe Cowley passes along word of what he said when someone asked him if Jenks was still his closer: “You know what? Ask Bobby what he wants to do because I don’t know.” 4:17 P.M.: Bobby Jenks has been…

  13. Zack Greinke is frustrated

    Aug 5, 2010, 4:50 PM EDT

    The future seems brighter for the Kansas City Royals lately, but their star pitcher is having a hard time seeing the light.

  14. Kevin Youkilis to have season-ending thumb surgery

    Aug 5, 2010, 4:25 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis went in for a second opinion on his thumb today. The only way it could have been worse was if the doctor said “you’re ugly too.”  The verdict: season ending surgery for the Red Sox’ best hitter. I’ve been declaring the Red Sox dead for a week now, but I think this is…

  15. Two days later, Indians reclaim infielder Wes Hodges

    Aug 5, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Wes Hodges, the Indians’ second-round pick in 2006, was reclaimed on waivers Thursday after being lost to the Rockies just two days earlier. The Indians originally designated Hodges for assignment on July 27, back when they still had Kerry Wood, Jhonny Peralta, Jake Westbrook, and Austin Kearns all occupying 40-man roster spots. Suddenly free of…

  16. HBT Daily: The Rangers and the Rockies

    Aug 5, 2010, 3:37 PM EDT

    Matt Stroup pinch hits for Tiffany and we talk Rangers sale, Rangers’ catcher and whether the Rockies can go on a run.

  17. Wilpon says that Omar Minaya will be the Mets' GM in 2011

    Aug 5, 2010, 3:13 PM EDT

    Everyone is wondering if this disappointing season will be the last go-around for Omar Minaya as the Mets’ general manager.  Owner Fred Wilpon says that it’s an absolute certainty: Wilpon, in East Hartford, Conn., to help announce a new partnership between SNY and UConn athletics, brushed aside reporters’ inquiries about his floundering Mets. But as…

  18. Pedro Martinez turned down offers from "several teams"

    Aug 5, 2010, 2:37 PM EDT

    This headline from an Associated Press story tells us what we already know by now. No, Pedro Martinez will not pitch this season. The interesting part, however, is that he said he turned down offers from “several teams” over the past two weeks. Martinez said he was “very happy” to receive the offers and called…

  19. The Royals continue to do smart things: Jose Guillen DFA'd

    Aug 5, 2010, 2:08 PM EDT

    Someone in Kansas City understands the concept of sunk costs and the desirability of roster flexibility: Jose Guillen has been designated for assignment. Guillen had a fast start this year, and I understand why the Royals continued to play him even after he cooled down. Their thinking: someone, somewhere [cough!] Brian Sabean [cough!] might have…

  20. The difference between good cheating and bad cheating

    Aug 5, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    USA Today’s Christine Brennan on A-Rod, in a column which argues that A-Rod’s PED use should cause Major League Baseball to dock him home runs: During those three tainted seasons in Texas, A-Rod hit more home runs than in any other three-year period of his 17-year career: 52 in 2001, 57 in 2002 and 47…
